As soon as I mention the 1958 National Defense Education, no one wants anything to do with me. Public education is like a genii in a bottle. The wish is the defined purpose and the students are the genii. We changed in the wish in 1958 and we are now the Military Industrial Complex (New World Order) we defended our democracy against. When I say things people move my threads to the conspiracy forum. One forum, completely different from this one, drove me out like a pack of wolves, with a moderator who said I wasn't allowed to speak of education. People do not want to hear what I am saying, and treat me like a nut case they want to avoid. It is impossible to get people to discuss the change in bureaucratic order or the change in public education. This forum is better than most. It is more tolerant and therefore more can be said, but God forbid if someone should say anything about the importance of freedom speech. Immediately mods get defensive, and everyone jumps in to inform me, that these forums are privately owned. You would not believe how long I have been at this, and how unpleasant it has been. I repeat, this forum has been the most tolerant and I seem to be having luck in discussions of economics. The mods here are more tolerant, and there are plenty of well informed people here.
Bottom line, my life has been focused on raising awareness for several years. Trust me, you do not walk in school and try to talk about anything. You do not call the school board, or the teachers union, and get good a response to a desire to talk about such things. Our elected representatives are too busy to discuss the change in public education and the economic ramifications. I don't know where to turn? I am doing better here than anywhere else, because some of you folks know more than I do about the different pieces.
